STEM Education with Real-World Experience

We live in exciting times. Technology and science are changing at breakneck speeds, and our society needs highly trained STEM professionals to lead us through this evolution.

At South Dakota Mines, you can take your love for math and science and become a problem solver, a leader, an innovator, and an entrepreneur. There is a future for you, and it is STEM!

Want to test-drive your future career while you’re still in school? We can help you connect with valuable research and internship opportunities in the local area and beyond.

How would you like to spend a summer at Google, Polaris, Microsoft, Garmin, Amazon or 4,850 feet below ground in the Sanford Underground Research Facility? That’s where our students are, working on real-world projects, solving problems and teaming up with the best in the industry.

Our internships and co-ops are great resume builders, indicating to future employers that you are ready to hit the ground running when they hire you. These opportunities lead to job offers. Many students secure employment before they even graduate!
